Video: Structure and function—Surface properties are the secret to smarter materials

By April Gocha / August 5, 2014

Materials’ surfaces are really important because they influence how something interacts with the rest of the world—and big advances in the understanding and fabrication of surfaces mean big advances in how those surfaces can function.

Can basic chemistry concepts explain oxide surfaces?

By / February 25, 2010

Researchers at Northwestern University and the University of Oxford say that relatively simple methods of explaining chemical bond mechanisms typically taught at undergraduate levels turns out to be an accurate way to understand the arrangement of atoms on a oxide’s surface. “For a long time we have not understood oxide surfaces,” said Laurence Marks, professor…
